In the beginning of a development we do feature definition.
Tasks during feature definition
Discuss on mail list, irc and social channels about feature additions. Collect ideas on wiki pages, and then create blueprints.
Making Feature Specifications (blueprints)
Planning of feature changes is done primarily by the use of feature specifications in the form of blueprints at http://launchpad.net. See our Blueprints page for an oversight of our active blueprints.
Anyone can suggest a feature change/addition. But, to make it a reality, someone also needs to implement it. Safest bet is that whoever makes the suggestion also works on implementing it.
Blueprints are created for projects, and the blueprint should be created by the driver of that project (typically ubuntustudio-dev), or the owner (ubuntustudio-core).
Approving Feature Specs
- If a feature spec is not objected, it will automatically be approved.
- If a feature is objected by anyone, it needs to be discussed within the community. If no resolution is found, ubuntustudio-core team, whose responsibility lies in upholding the quality and integrity of Ubuntu Studio, has last say .
- If a feature spec will break something in Ubuntu, or in other ways does not comply to Debian and/or Ubuntu policies, it may be automatically disapproved by the ubuntustudio-core team.
